Had 4 up the coast last year, last incident was about 30 years ago. Extremely rare. No sweat.

The water last year was extremely cold for that coastline, creating good conditions for the sharks. Very rare. The surfers were mostly quite far off shore when they were attacked.

No One was attacked in Zihuatanejo's Bay as there are no sharks in it. Killed off long ago. Now open ocean it is/was always possible BUT Highly unlikely.
